Chunky Apple Cake
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling
This apple cake is good. I added walnuts and raisins as some suggested. I didn’t make the Butterscotch sauce. I bought a bottle of caramel sauce for topping. If you’re not eating the whole cake right away, the homemade sauce didn’t seem like a good idea.
Really great flavor and easy to make. I used a food processor for the apples, and cut the calories by using Egg Beaters, LF yogurt spread (Brummel & Brown) and monk fruit with a little Splenda to sweeten it (since I can't have a lot of sugar.) Served with with a cup of hot latte it's so comforting - especially on a chilly Fall afternoon! Next time I'll add raisins. Keeps well in the fridge. This is a keeper!
I already left my review, but wanted to say, I did find that I needed the full 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda for the half recipe, so I'm thinking a full teaspoon for the whole cake? At any rate, really awesome recipe!!!
You forgot the Walnuts. Chopped Walnuts make a huge difference.
I have made this for years! It was called Apple Dapple Cake!
When I put this recipe together the batter was extremely thick, and I could barely fold in the apples. I struggled to press it into the 9x13 pan. I thought for sure I would have to throw it out the next day and find another recipe for the birthday party. To my amazement it cooked perfectly and my family loved it. I will use this recipe without fear for any occasion.
Yum! I also followed a couple of the suggestions for the sugar and used 1 cup white, 1/2 cup brown and it was perfectly sweet. I chopped the apples (galas because thats what I had) and liked that they didnt turn into a mushy mess-they have a nice texture. I know the sauce isn't "necessary" but it sure is delicious! Honestly the cake was moist and yummy without it, but the sauce added a nice layer of flavor. Next time I will toss in some raisins and see how that goes. Thanks for a great recipe! This is going into the "family-fave-make-regularly" list!
I use to make this all the time, my ex-mother-in-law taught it to me... but she always sliced (not diced) her apples and never used any topping other than an occasional sprinkling of powdered sugar. It was one of the few cakes that my step-dad (a type 2 diabetic) could eat once in a while. I've made this both ways and it's awesome either way but I think I lean more towards the no icing and sliced apples.
Delicious, this is my go to apple cake, everyone loves it,,with the sauce,,
Made this for my husband's collector club. I didn't have the spices individually so I used apple pie spice. It worked well. I didn't have time to make the butterscotch sauce, but the cake itself was sweet enough. One of my husband's friends went back for seconds.
